CTP or Greenslip

More about CTP

CTP insurance covers you for injuries you cause to other people in a Motor Vehicle accident.

Compulsory Third Party (CTP) is insurance attached to the registration of your vehicle, which provides protection to the at fault driver, against compensation claims from people injured in a motor vehicle accident.

Remember that CTP doesn't cover damage to your vehicle, other vehicles, or property. That’s where you’ll need either Third Party Property or Comprehensive Car Insurance.

More about CTP

Do you need CTP?

CTP is compulsory by law. In most states, it’s included in your car registration, but in NSW you need to buy it separately.

Why Car Insurance is important

If you’re like most Aussies, your car is what gets you from A to B comfortably. Driving means different things to different people — independence, convenience, routine, or a chance to explore. So, whether you drive a family SUV, well-loved ute or sleek sports car, you want to feel protected. Depending on your level of cover, your Car Insurance is there to protect not only your car, but the drivers involved too.

At AAMI, we understand how important it is to get the right Car Insurance. If you’re still not sure which one is best for you, we also provide more information on Comprehensive Car insurance and Third Party Car insurance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A professional process The heuristic features of AAMI's online insurance portal make purchasing insurance an easy and painless experience. In fact it was easier to fill out the insurance form than this survey ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Car Insurance Claim Very happy with the service for our claim for hail damage to our car. Claim was handled very promptly with good communication. Only bugbear is the question on Date of Birth on the online claim form. Using a tablet this requires the user to use the calendar function and then cycle back to the date of birth. In may case as I'm 65 this required 780 taps to cycle back to my birth date. There does not appear to be an override facility to allow the user to directly enter the date. This is very poor programming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! Just purchased a brand new car and decided to look for a better insurance deal. Comprehensive car insurance through AMMI was over $200 per year cheaper than my old insurer, or any other insurance quote for the same vehicle! Very pleased...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Missed Opportunity I have three private vehicles comprehensively insured with AAMI. Unfortunately AAMI has not provided or offered a loyalty discount for two or more vehicles so Ill be wasting time looking around for a better deal.:-((

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Entering date of birth is cumberfsome Product is fine, as I have always insured my cars with AAMI. Feedback here is mostly about experience with the website to complete the transaction, particularly using roller to enter the DOB for both drivers. It takes too long as it requires too many clicks to enter the date, month and year for both drivers. The default is current day and month, which makes no sense, because no one born today would be taking an insurance policy to insure a car. Scrolling down the system offers an alternate date around 1920. From then on you have to click to scroll down from 2018, or up from 1920. Too many clicks when I could have entered the date much quicker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and friendly help when lodging a claim AAMI has been very professional with our claim when our vehicle burnt to the ground through no fault of ours. AAMI settled the claim quickly to enable us to purchase a replacement vehicle, and they organised removal of the burnt out vehicle. This took a lot of worry off our shoulders. Thank you

Rated 1 out of 5 by from shocking phone service when trying to pay a quote over phone csr good not see i was authorised on my wifes policy to discuss it. i have spoken to people there at least 6 times over the last year about th epolicy and there has never been an issue finding after my wife out me on the file as someone who can discuss all elements of our current policy that we were trying to "extend" with a new online quote. even spoke to someone 3 hours ago there and there was no issue. csr could not fnd the quote number i quoted. she could not understand it was a quote i was calling about and not a renewal. she asked me three times if i wanted to pay the renewal. i tried to explain to her 4 times i wanted to pay a new quote - i gave up on her and told her we would call back tomorrow. instead i went back on line, got a new online quote and today i was able to pay that one as opposed to last nights quote that i couldn't. either i was speaking to a new csr or someone that needs extra (re-)training. And i certainly don't have time for this poor level of trained service

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disapointed I chose not to renew my policy and instead went through a new quote. when i done a fresh quote i saved approx $50. I knew that my driving offense becoming older than 3 year would drop my insurance yet AAMI didn't take that into account when offering me my renewal. This is very disapointing considering they have this information in there system. Do better AAMI, Car's are expensive enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, simple.. and efficient. Taking AAMI insurance was like a breath of fresh air, after a couple of troublesome and aggravating experiences with a couple of other companies.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from $100 discount at no point did your online quote system show me the $100 deduction on price nor did you ask me what value I wanted to insure my car

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Change of Insurer We have always insured everything with another insurer, but we have been comparing policies and have now switched our policies over to AAMI as they come due, and we have saved ourselves quite a bit of money, for a better product. Insuring with AAMI on line is easy, and you don't have to answer heaps of questions to get a quote that is more expensive anyway!
Date published: 2018-08-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to get a quote and insurance and . . . . wow! Just changed my insurance from another well-known insurer to AAMI via AAMI's website. I was able to alter the excess amount and car value to match my old policy and compare like-for-like. I saved $380 by changing to AAMI. The policies offered on two insurance comparison websites weren't even close to this price.
Date published: 2018-08-04
Rated 1 out of 5 by from $100 cheaper to insure if i change my address to ACROSS THE ROAD Seems crazy that a car insurance policy can differ so greatly when you accidentally put in the address from across the street. same style house, same style driveway, same access to a cul-de-sac yet $100 cheaper than my own house. system needs reviewing.

Pressure dents

Although small, paint chips and surface scratches can be really unsightly. Luckily, Schmick can have your car looking back to brand new.

Surface scratches

Although small, paint chips and surface scratches can be really unsightly. Luckily, Schmick can have your car looking back to brand new.

Bumper bar scrapes

It’s common for bumpers to get scuffed or scraped. Schmick is able to colour-match and blend minor cosmetic scratches, scrapes, dents, and scuffs, so your bumper looks good as new.

Write off

We consider your car a write off when:

  • It’s stolen and unrecovered after 14 days; or 
  • We decide it's uneconomical, impractical or unsafe to repair.

We also refer to this as ‘total loss’.

New car if less than 2 years old

If your car’s a total loss, we’ll cover the cost to replace it with a new car that’s the same or similar make and model if:

  • your car is less than 2 years old
  • you’re the first registered owner

This is a just summary. For full details check the PDS (Product Disclosure Statement). It’s dry, we know, but it’s essential reading

 

Amount Covered

How much your vehicle's insured for.

It’s the maximum amount we’ll pay for loss or damage to your vehicle caused by an insured incident.  The amount is shown on your certificate of insurance and includes GST.

Modifications and accessories

Modifications are alterations made to your vehicle that change its original manufacturer's standard construction or performance - such as modified suspension.

Accessories are things that are added to your vehicle for convenience or attractiveness - such as tinted windows in a car - that don't change its original manufacturer's standard construction or performance.

AAMI car policies automatically include cover for modifications and accessories up to the amount your vehicle's covered for. There's no need to list them on your policy, just make sure the amount you cover your car for is enough to also cover the value of all the insured accessories and modifications.
